Short summary
Vertical profiles of the particle backscattering coefficient at 355, 532 and 1064 nm measured by the Raman lidar system BASIL are compared with simulated particle backscatter profiles obtained through the application of a Mie scattering code and the use of simultaneous and co-located measurements by an optical particle counter on board the French research aircraft ATR42 operated by SAFIRE in the framework of the Hydrological Cycle in the Mediterranean Experiment – Special Observation Period 1.
